I recently had to report a pet store as well.. You can contact the BBB (as already mentioned) or your local SPCA. Google "pet store abuse" and see if any of the top results lead you to people you can call about this. That's what I did. :) Be sure to keep documentation of interactions with the owner (time, date, what was said) if you plan to report them to the BBB.

I know this is all really overwhelming! I keep trying to overthrow PetCo, but it's a chain store so.... that could be a bit difficult. You want to stop this sceevy man from hurting anymore defenseless fishies. I

Luckily, this store isn't a chain store you cannot destroy chain stores. ever so many have tried, and failed with the best of chain stores

You could start with a letter to the editor of your local newspaper then get online and look for any local forums, local twitterers/facebookers, etc. and spread the word that way. You could even get a few friends together and stand across the street from the store and protest with signs! OCCUPY PET SHOP! Make sure the local TV station news team knows you will be there and they will come and do a story.

All this is legal and will make the store keeper think twice about how he keeps his animals because his business will suffer.

WOW!!! That is Horrific! I know of some places where they will take the bettas in bad condition and nurish them back to help. Stores who do that should not be able to sell fish..... They are killing them. Are the Bettas you buy cheap???

And they do sell fish. Fish are quantity, not quality. The fish in that store he is talking about are like... what, 10-20 or more dollars? not worth sick bettas for sure. He also rips off their money - expensive tanks. that should not be so expensive.
